AT:“The Wonder of Bird Migration: The Science Behind It and How Plants Help“

March 21, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


What: Presentation by Sarah Flournoy, Bird-Friendly Communities Program Manager, Houston Audubon

Event Summary

Houston is one of the most significant cities in the country for bird migration. This means that we all have the ability to enjoy a magnificent display of color and sound each spring and fall, but it also means that we are charged with caring for these creatures while they are here. The first part of the presentation will explore the behavior of migratory birds and recent developments in the science of bird migration. The second part of the program will highlight how individuals can help migratory birds and how native plants provide vital services to birds and all urban wildlife.

Speaker’s Information

Sarah Flournoy is the Program Manager for Houston Audubon’s Bird-Friendly Communities Program. Her work connects people to the fascinating diversity of the Upper Texas Coast, where Houston Audubon conserves and restores habitat for birds. Sarah believes that native plants are the key to a healthy food web and one of the most important parts of a thriving urban habitat. She loves prairie plants but also has a real fondness for Mexican Plum and Parsley Hawthorn. Sarah, along with Houston Audubon, invites everyone to join in the action, recognizing that “where birds thrive, people prosper.”

Mark your calendars. We hope to see you!
